Fretboards was established in 1980. Jeff has played guitar since 1970 and is an Ontario Certified Teacher qualified in teaching music. He presently teaches in the Public Education sector at the Secondary Level. Drawing on his years of experience he has developed a ten-week introductory guitar playing course; however, all lessons are custom tailored.



Fretboards expanded several years ago into building and/or modifying/repairing guitars. Jeff studied under a master luthier for 16 months after which he became a member of the Guild of American Luthiers. Jeff places the same stringent standards to the quality of his craftmanship as he does in the quality of the lessons he delivers to his guitar/ music students.

Art and composition tolerate no conventional fetters: mind and soul soar above them. ~Joseph Haydn, 1779
